USC football signs spring enrollees
The rich just keep getting richer.
Despite limited scholarships and a subpar season by USC football standards, the Trojans continue to bring in a plethora of talent.
Along with defensive back Isiah Wiley (Yuma, Ariz.), who already committed to the Trojans earlier this week, offensive lineman David Garness (San Francisco, Calif.), signed his letter of intent to be a Trojan as well.
Garness was a two-time (2009-2010) All-NorCal Conference first team selection as an offensive tackle at City of College of San Francisco.
Both Wiley and Garness will be entering USC as juniors.
The Trojans will also be bringing in quarterback Cody Kessler (Bakersfield, Calif.), who was the 2010 Gatorade California Player of the Year at Centennial High School. He threw for 2831 yards and 36 TDs, and ran for eight TDs as a senior. As a junior, he was named Cal-Hi Sports All-State Underclass and Bakersfield Californian Area Player of the Year.
Another quarterback in Max Wittek (Santa Ana, Calif.) of Mater Dei HS also committed to the Trojans. Wittek, a Connecticut native, was named to the All-Trinity League first team for the Mater Dei Monarchs.Â He threw for 2,252 yards and 24 TDs, and also ran for six TDs during his senior year.
Fullback Soma Vainuku (Eureka, Calif.) who happens to be former Trojansâ€™ linebacker Rey Maualugaâ€™s cousin, and placekicker Andre Heidari (Bakersfield, Calif.) round out the spring enrollees on the first day of the mid-year signing period.
Vainuku originally signed with USC in February 2010, but did not qualify for admission.Â During the 2009 season, he earned Super Prep All-Farwest, Cal-Hi All-State Medium Schools first team and All-Humboldt-Del Norte Big Four League first team as a linebacker and fullback.
Head coach Lane Kiffin still expects more spring enrollees to sign with USC in the near future.
